Notes/Commercial Description:
Smoked Pigasus is a robust and delicious porter brewed with rye, smoked malt, and maple syrup. The maple syrup provides a perfect balance for the smoked malt. Smoked Pigasus pours a deep mahogany with aromas of chocolate, smoke, and caramel. A big thank you to Pappy's Smokehouse!

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance (4.5) : Very dark, with a very foamy, light-brown head. Very inviting.

Smell (5.00) : Oaty, Smoky, a hint of Sweet. This is a very complex smell but it's all tied together and made into a very simple smell. You can actually pick up on the syrup smell as well, surprisingly.

Taste (4.00) : Very dark and smoky, the maple syrup isn't very prevalent but becomes more prevalent as I drink.

Mouthfeel (4.00) : Leaves an extremely smoky flavor, I feel as though I'm inside a barbecue pit. The carbonation is also just right for this style of beer.

Overall (4.25) : Just an amazing beer in my opinion. Definitely a new favorite, especially around barbecue season.

I poured a bottle into a goblet.

Appearance- Dark brown color with a fingers worth of tan head. Light amount of runny lacing.

Smell- Smoke and chocolate aromas with a light hint of maple.

Taste- Dark roasted and smoked malt flavors with a vanilla sweetness. Chocolate notes with a hint of maple. I am not really tasting any rye flavors.

Mouthfeel- Full bodied and smooth. Light amount of carbonation with a dry finish.

Overall- A very good porter. Worth having again.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Smoke? Check. Pun in the name? Double-check. Let's do this shit, said I in the beer aisle. This stuff pours a nearly opaque midnight sienna topped by a finger or so of sandy suds. The nose comprises dark hickory smoke, cocoa powder, roasted malts, and a touch of brown sugar. The taste brings in more of the same, with the smoke thoroughly up front and sticking throughout and the brown sugar taking on a more molasses-y turn. Things seem overly dry and nearly harsh, though, as the smoke and roast aren't very forgiving. The body is a stolid medium, with a moderate carbonation and a rather drying finish. Overall, a nice enough smoked porter, but I felt it was a tad too dry and overly-roasted to truly shine. Still, I wouldn't shy away from a repeat tasting sometime in the future.
